Riding bikes is fun. Whether you are riding a bike on a paved street, a gravel roadway, a logging road or a single track trail you can’t help but have fun riding a bike. Something magical happens when you are moving (flying) through the world on 2 wheels not evening thinking about balance and agility, just feeling the wind in your face and enjoying the scenery as it flies by.

The sport of mountain biking is growing exponentially, and this is especially true for kids and teenagers. Here are some of the reasons that mountain biking is good for kids and teenagers:

Kids and Teens today are often referred to as “screenagers”. According to a report by Common Sense Media tweens age 8 to 12 spend 6 hours a day in front of screen while teens spend 9 hours on screens. Mountain biking inherently takes place in nature. Kid and teens who mountain bike reconnect with nature often without even realizing it. There really isn’t anything like being outside and breathing fresh air. Kids who take time to unplug connect with nature can have a positive effect on their entire mind, body and spirit.

Getting out and about during the summer months is an exciting and fun activity. However, it’s important to make sure that children are safe, especially when cycling late in the evening. LED lights are easy to install anywhere, even on bicycles. Lights on bikes are the best way to make sure that children riding bicycles can be seen by other road users.
